Concept for Afterschool

This class is designed to help participants improve their communication in English. We place the students according to their level in specific groups and implement a detailed plan to help each child reach their English goals in the following areas: speaking, reading, and writing. These three hours offer quality individual time, as well as group time where the students can practice and learn English in a comfortable environment. In addition, nearly-native and native speakers will have time to work on their homework from their international schools, along with improve their reading and writing skills. For these special students, our school can also provide them with a place to increase their English ability to stay competitive in their own learning environment. All of our students, during our group time, will learn and/or improve their English skills through a variety of fun and educational activities. Overall, our after school class is a time where any student can improve their English skills to help them excel in the future.

Afterschool Curriculum

Speaking Time

It is essential that the children have a specific time when they can speak English. During this section of the afternoon, we place the students in groups, according to their speaking level, and teach them one specific grammar point. At our school, we have a detailed teaching plan that we follow to ensure that our students learn the basics of English speaking. For those students who are nearly-native or are native speakers, they are in their own group and with the teacher's guidance learn how to express themselves in more complex ways from daily conversation to presentation skills. We believe this time presents us, the teachers, a chance to help our students excel at speaking English.

Reading time

Learning how to read English is a skill that even non-native speakers can achieve quickly. Throughout our reading time, we separate the students into different reading levels. For those who can not read, they work on phonics by playing a variety of fun, interactive games. For early readers, with help from a teacher, each student in the group reads a sentence from a book aloud. We believe that group reading helps the students gain confidence in their reading, and if they make a mistake, their fellow classmates or the teacher can help. For confident readers, they can pick their own book and read on their own out loud with some assistance by the teacher, who can help the student learn proper intonation and also check the student's reading comprehension. Even though a student can not read in the beginning, we will guide him/her through the process of reading, and eventually, he/she should be able to read long sentences and complete books.

Writing time

This is yet another time when non-native speakers can find a place where they can excel. As always, we will split the children up into different groups according to their writing level. Along with our speaking time, we have created a detailed list of objectives that we want our students to learn. These objectives include: how to write the alphabet, spelling simple and eventually more complex words by using phonics rules, and starting to learn and understand English grammar and eventually doing journal writing. Not only are these three basic points pivotal to increasing children's understanding of English, but also help children improve their speaking and their reading ability.

Optional classes

For children who already posses basic English skills, we provide several optional classes to enhance their level of English. For example, an advanced discussion class called "Current Events" where the students share and discuss news articles with each other. We also have a journal writing class where students are given specific instructions to help them write better sentences, paragraphs, and essays. Furthermore, we offer other classes that expand students knowledge in Science and History.

Eiken classes

We have classes for students who are planning to take the English Proficiency Test, Eiken. Learning Tree is an autholized testing place for Eiken levels 2, 3, 4 and 5 (levels 2 and 3 - written only) by the Japan English Proficiency Testing Organization.

Private class

Private lessons accelrate your progress at all levels. If you need help with your homework, want to learn a particular theme, and/or desire to study one on one, we can create an individual curriculum for you.
